Cleaning out the fridge

So we're at T-minus 8 days til we leave. I'm in a mild state of panic. The car has to go in for repairs of all things! the timing couldn't be worse. I have no idea when it's going to happen and how long it's going to take. This means I have to be ready with all my errands done tomorrow.

This week's meals are all about clearing out the freezer. Of course our neighbor was kind enough to bring buy a garbage bag FULL of veggies from his garden since mine once again died. I swear I have a black thumb.

Sunday: BBQ chicken (which I burned, thank you very much)
Monday: Confessions of a Psychotic Housewife: Recipe: Mexican Bake
Tuesday: Hawaiian Haystacks
Wednesday: taco salad
Thursday: tuna boats
Friday: pancakes
Saturday: Spaghetti

As you can see, I'm so hectic this week, I have no idea what we're eating most nights LOL My main priority this week is cheap and no leftovers! The kids are going to be loving it since most of the meals are very quick and easy and fun. The less time I spend in the kitchen this week, the more time I have to get everything organized. Plus, it's supposed to be in the upper 90s most of the week. yuk.

I have a ton of sewing to do this week, too. I still have to finish Millie's blessing gown and two more little girl dresses. Then, I promised Ben shorts (but those take about 15 minutes) and travel bags for each child. Phew.

I'm going to need a vacation from this vacation!


  1. Vacation prep can be stressful, and car trouble doesn't help at all. Have a good week and a great vacation, anyway!

  2. after reading this post, I'm going to take a nap now! HA! you ARE busy!

  3. I don't think the weather is any better out here!

    Don't worry, I have the same black thumb. I have two tomato plants hanging on for dear life.

    Cheap and easy is the perfect meal plan!


Thanks and have a great day!
